Care Organizations

The program now completes a full suite of health care administration
degree offerings with bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral level programs.

program supports knowledge and skill development in the use of analytics

reimbursement models require fresh ways of thinking and innovation,”

become strong health care leaders adept at responding to the regulatory
and policy changes brought about by health care reforms.”

learning using Vila
